New Library System

Our library cooperative will be improving your patron experience with a new computer system called Polaris. During the migration, some services and system functions will be temporarily suspended. Please bring your library card to check out items during this time because we will not be able to retrieve account information by name.

We apologize in advance for any inconvenience. If you have questions or need assistance, please call us at 313-343-2575.

Transition Timeline:

Starting Sept. 1: Patrons will be unable to place holds on items, including MeLCat (our statewide catalog) items.

Sept. 14 - Oct. 3: Items will not be due during this time.

Sept. 14 - 21: Patrons will not be able to access their account online. No new library cards will be issued during this time.

Sept. 22: The new system, Polaris, will be in place and holds can resume (except for MeLCat, which will be available in November).

Curbside Pickup

If you know that you have books to pick up but you aren't able to come inside the library, we will bring them out to  you. Park on the south side of the building (near the bike racks and drop box) and give us a call at 313-343-2575. Curbside pickup is available during the library's current hours.
